Community Engagement

Citizens are ‘engaged’ when they play a meaningful role in the deliberations, discussions, decision-making and/or implementation of projects or programs affecting them. Because of this,  we partnered with  the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment to complete a Community Engagement study to determine the project scope.

Our Mission

Here at Valley First, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and are driven by the ideas that we founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress for the communities of Colorado City and Rye. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
